A-22 Durant Questions


First, i´d like to excuse me for my english, because i´am from germany. I try to write as good as possible. Hope you can understand me.

My boss buy last week a durant Typ A22 Touring or Sport Touring. The car was looked in stone walls for many years in the city of hamburg. Lucky, because it is in good condition. Then it was owned by an old man who can´t restore the car because of his bad health.

Yesterday, i spent time on the engine, adjust ignition, add fuel and: it runs! Great thing! who knows how long the engine stand´s still.

Now i had a few questions:

We found an engine number 147355. But there is no typ plate on the firewall. where is the frame number at the chassis? What Year?

I think it is not a sport modell?

Who exportet the durant cars and who sold it in europe?

The car has an kilometer speedometer, so i think its build specally for export?
